Ongoing since 2014
Principal Investigator: Ellen Gannett, M.Ed.
Project Director: Betsy Starr, M.Ed.
Funder: Wyoming Afterschool Alliance (WYAA)
NIOST worked with the Wyoming Afterschool Alliance (WYAA) to develop statewide Program Quality Practices (PQPs) for School Age, Afterschool, and Youth Development programs. NIOST continues its partnership with WYAA to implement these PQPs and integrate them into their quality system. This phase includes development of a User Guide for afterschool providers, creation of presentation, webinar, and website content to communicate the importance of the PQPs and their alignment within the quality system, and evaluation of the implementation efforts.
